Maduri: Should we take another look at the first amendment protections?
DALLAS – The Facebook of a black power group has has claimed responsibility for the deaths of five police officers in Dallas. The primary suspect – who was killed – has been identified at Micah Xavier Johnson, who served with the US Army Reserve for six years and served in Afghanistan. The Dallas police chief – who is also black – said the shooter wanted to kill white people and cops.
This has to stop. We routinely condemn white power groups when they spew racism, and rightly so. Now a black power group has spewed more than hate. They’ve spewed bullets and killed cops. We need to condemn black power groups and and all race-based groups like this.
A look at the First Amendment: General. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.A careful reading of the First Amendment reveals that it protects several basic liberties — freedom of religion, speech, press, petition, and assembly. Interpretation of the amendment is far from easy, as court case after court case has tried to define the limits of these freedoms.
